Ney Dimaculangan jokes that maybe Anne Curtis can teach him how to sing.
Now that former 6CycleMind vocalist Ney Dimaculangan has gone solo with a self-titled album under Star Records, many are wondering if this career move is the beginning of Ney’s decision explore other fields in showbiz like what other musicians had done before him. Singer/songwriter Rico Blanco was seen playing the villain opposite John Lloyd Cruz and Angel Locsin in the teleserye Imortal (Ney sang the theme song for the show entitled “Walang Hanggan”), while Ney’s 6CycleMind bandmate Tutti Caringal (who took over vocalist duties) has been co hosting Music Uplate Live with Yeng Constantino.
However, Ney clarified that he has no plans of becoming an actor any time soon. “Hindi muna siguro. Focus ko talaga ngayon is my music.” In terms of hosting, he said that he may give it a try. “Kung hosting pwede rin, kung kakayanin ko at kakayanin ng schedule ko. Pero kung mukhang parang napilitan lang ako, huwag na lang siguro. Baka lalo pang mapasama.”
Ney’s debut solo album contains twelve cuts, most of which are his own compositions. The reason he decided to go solo for a while was to have the chance to be solely in charge of his own music. “100% of my songs are me. I’m proud to say na magaganda lahat ng ginawa kong kanta. I’m very excited nang ilabas itong album ko para mai-share ko na sa lahat.”
He also noted one song from the CD, entitled “Tagapagligtas,” as the best one to describe him. “Siguro kasi I see myself as someone giving inspiration. Mahirap humanap ng inspirasyon. So by listening to my songs I hope maging tagapagligtas ako ng mga tao sa kalungkutan.”
Ney also admitted to reporters his admiration for Anne Curtis. The rocker had already met the actress/TV host, and he had only good words for her. “Gusto ko ‘yung personality niya. Mabait siya. Akala mo lang puro showbiz siya, pero kapag nakausap mo mararamdaman mong totoong tao siya.”
When Ney found out that Anne was also about to release an album, he expressed his excitement over the opportunity to work with her, maybe even write a song or sing a duet with her. “Tinanong ako nung contract signing ko kung sino raw ang gusto kong makatrabaho. Ang sinabi ko si Anne Curtis, ha ha ha! Duet kami, bakit hindi? Turuan niya ako kumanta, ha ha ha!”
